Kelli's notes for this recipe:
Wondering what to do with all your summer veggies? This casserole dish is the ticket! Stumbled across this one on the internet. It was delicious. I used a little more pasta and cheese than what the recipe called for because I knew my kiddos would probably pick out the pasta.

Cook pasta according to package directions, drain when cooked. Preheat oven to 400.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan. Add squash, zucchini, and onion; sauté 5 minutes. Add tomato and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in pasta, 1/2 cup mozzarella, herbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper.
Combine ricotta, remaining salt, and egg. Stir into pasta mixture. Spoon into an 8-inch square glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until bubbly and browned.

Whoops- I forgot there is also 2 cups of chopped tomatoes! I edited the recipe ingredients but it may take awhile for it to update.

Sounds almost like the recipe I have done for years except I use rice instead of Ziti pasta
